Georgia Pre-K

Continuing to nurture your child's mind, the Kids 'R' Kids Pre-Kindergarten program is filled with enjoyable activities for any child. This is the next stop on your child's way toward elementary learning. Here, learning is driven by student development and imagination.

 We are proud to offer two Georgia Pre-K classrooms at our facility; which enables us to serve 44 children.

Georgia's Pre-K Program is designed to develop and support quality Pre-K experiences for four year-old children. The program, administered by Bright from the Start, is focused on increasing school readiness and improving overall school performance. Now in its 20th year, nationally recognized Georgia's Pre-K is a universal, voluntary program currently serving 86,000 children across the state.

 

Our program meets and exceeds national standards, has literature-based units, and addresses all learning styles. The program's goal is to help each child succeed to his fullest potential; which is why each unit of study was developed with the learner in mind.

Pre-Kindergarten activities include large and small hands-on groups, independent activities, and realistic application. The learning stations and curriculum are designed to build children's comprehension. Through independent and cooperative learning strategies, children are able to apply thought, imagination, and creativity into their educational experiences.

This program is broken down into three categories: academic introductions, individual and group activities, and center opportunities. The academic introductions are group learning sessions where students are introduced to subject matter. Our individual and group activities help students apply what they have learned and focus on building individual comprehension. Pre-Kindergarten center opportunities provide the following:

Language and Literacy Center helps children build their language skills.
Art Center presents free-choice art experiences that develop skills and imagination.
Construction Center develops spatial awareness through stacking, sorting, building, and recreating.
Dramatic Play Center encourages individual and group role play activities with realistic and imaginary props.
Math Center lets children apply math skills with a variety of materials and strategies.
Reading Center promotes independent reading and a love of books.
Science/Sensory Center allows children to experiment with materials.
Writing Center encourages beginning letter formation through a variety of materials and activities.

Children continue to learn about themselves and the environment around them in an atmosphere permeated with the Kids 'R' Kids philosophy of “Hug First, Then Teach.” Teachers encourage and praise children for their accomplishments, building their self-esteem and creating memorable learning experiences with them.
